Crawfish, Crayfish, Crawdads–no matter what you call them– the bright red, tiny-looking lobsters are best served Cajun style!
Surprisingly, crawfish meat tastes quite similar to lobster meat if they were prepared identically. However, crawfish are typically boiled and seasoned with spicy, Cajun flavors, so their sweet meat is accompanied by other flavors. Crawfish are also traditionally served whole, and the art of eating them (by sucking out their heads) is a unique one.
Crawfish are great additions to crab and shrimp boils! Available frozen year-round and live during season.
